The film of my childhood.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Goonies [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
It's something every kid wants to do. Have a close group of pals who go in search of a legendary pirates treasure and find more than we bargained for.
There was something magic about the goonies. Maybe it was just the plot...or the traps set by the pirates...or the treasure...getting tailed by a family of theives (admit it,everyone was scared of Mama Fratelli!)
I couldn't belive it when I saw Sean Astin in Lord of The Rings. I had always remembered him as a skinny wimp with braces! Each character in this film is unique and I loved them all. I thought Chunk was hilarious especially when he's trying to tame Sloth!
I don't know anyone who doesn't love this film, and it's classy 80s costumes (esp Brand and the shorts over trousers!) If you're a child of the 80's and haven't seen it think shame on yourself. Get it and make amends pronto!
